>> the new york judge wants macy's and jcpenneys to get on with it make a deal over martha stewart. they are mired over penny's attempt to sell martha's housewares. now the trial is on hold. at least until early april, and that's the time the judge wants an out of court mediated settlement. the 24-year-old woman who was killed by a lion in california apparently died of a broken neck and other neck injuries. last the conclusion of a preliminary autopsy. the coroner also says that the lion and at wildcat park appears to have escaped a smaller pen to the larger enclosure where it attacked the intern who was cleaning it. the intern's name was diana hansen.
9:02 am
that's all the time we have for you. thank you so much, everyone. stay tuned. "around the world" is next. >> hello, everyone. welcome to "around the world." i'm fredricka whitfield in for suzanne malveaux. >> i'm michael holmes. thanks for being with us. >> a big announcement. we are one step closer to knowing who the pope might be. >> the vatican just announced the date for the all important conclave. let's bring in john allen. he's in rome, of course. where else? tuesday is the big day. the idea of why it was selected? it's considered in italy to be a bit of an unlucky day. >> reporter: there's sort of an old roman's wise tale you don't want to start anything on tuesday. in this case the cardinals decided they would roll the dice because they wanted to get this thing under way. and the purpose of the period we
9:03 am
just lived through over the last week and a half was to get themselves organized. they don't want the spectacle of a long conclave with the divisions and chaos and internal fighting and all of that. obviously they think they have some preliminary consensus worked out. so they're ready to bring the curtain up on this great piece of theater we're going to be seeing playing out in rome over the next few days. >> explain that theater. what is likely to happen? >> well, what's going to happen is tuesday morning the cardinals will celebrate the mass or the election of the pope to sort of join in prayer for a successful conclave. that afternoon they will file into the 16th chapel. they'll sing a hymn to the holy spirit. they will assemble in the 16th chapel. they will swear their oath. they will take one ball et the first night. it would be extremely rare for a pope to be elected on the the
9:04 am
first ball et. we presume they will return the next wednesday. they will do two ballots in the morning and two ballots in the afternoon. for as long as it takes for one of the cardinals to cross the magic two-thirds threshold which is 77 votes to be elected the next pope. >> stay with us. i want to bring in father james martin. let's talk about this process, the history of it and the timing. a lot of people, particularly in the united states, have seen this as a slow move to a con claf. but these things take time. they move at their own pace, don't they? >> they do. the cardinals want to gather been the conclave in order that they might have time to discuss the kind of person they want and the problems facing the church. i think it makes sense they would have free time before they start to do their voting. it makes sense. >> and father, there's some i tami i
9:05 am
allian italian reports which have showed some consternation from the european and africa, asia and beyond and there's a lot of pressure to try to get a non-european. especially to depart from any sort of corruption, reports of mismanagement. are you hearing anything like that? does it sound feasible? >> i think there's two things going on. you saw something of a media clamp down after the american cardinals were giving press briefings. i think that went against the ways of some cardinals in the vatican. maybe some of the italian cardinals and some of the more traditional cardinals. but everyone is looking for someone who can really move the church ahead, who can confront all the issues facing the church. sexual abuse, the feeling that the church is irrelevant. i don't know there's much difference on that. everyone is more or less united about trying to find the best person. >> and father, before we let you go, i'm curious about also
9:06 am
the -- all of these cardinals were either appointed by benedict or his previous successor. so there's a feeling that it's more of the same candidate list. with these scandals and corruption claims and all of the rest, the there really needs to this be a shift, does there not? or at least the appearance of one. >> i think there does need to be a shift. all the cardinals are appointed by john paul or benedict. but once the person is elected. it's up to him what he wants to do. it's up to the holy spirit to guide him. all the cardinals know there needs to be changes. especially vatican governing and some of the scandals that have been happening. even if you get someone from the pool of people that benedict and jo john paul appointed, they know there needs to be a change. >> john allen, joining us from rome, thanks to both of you
9:07 am
gentlemen. appreciate it. and markets have been way up this week and the last couple of weeks. unemployment is down, lower than expected. >> lots of signs of encouragement. the official unemployment rate as of this morning, now 7.7%. >> let's break down the numbers with ali velshi. and then alison kosik. what is interesting is all this great news. the market was like, eh. >> reporter: yeah, exactly. you know what, i did see the dow pop at the open. some of the spirit, the celebration is fizzling out. the dow continues to reach the record highs. this is the fourth day in a row. the question is, will it close on a record high? one trader puts it this way, though. the jobs data is more significant than this record high that the dow is hitting every day. they're feeling more encouragement. because they're seeing the jobs day that that came out all week.
9:08 am
and those jobless claims numbers are going down. all of those reports are matching ha the government is saying today. the increase in government in 230,000 jobs last month. this trader says this is a real sign of progress. one reason you may see the celebration mr. muted is because the focus is on the bank stress tests that the fed released yesterday. the federal reserve put the country's biggest banks under what's known as stress tests to see in a hypothetical situation if the nation's biggest banks can withstand a sharp economic downturn. the majority of the banks scored good points. jpmorgan chase, bank of america and goldman sachs came out too close to having risky assets by the federal reserve standards. that's making investors gun shy to buy into the market today. nonetheless, once again, the dow is at another record high. >> all right, alison. appreciate that.
9:09 am
thanks so much. alison kosik there in the midst of it. >> we're not done. let's talk about that jobs report. christine romans is joining us now. we're all one big family, you know. >> we look a little different. >> but you're interchangeable, almost, given that you share a book. let's look at the unemployment rate. 7.7. very encouraging. an indicator of more jobs, particularly in the private sector. >> you see hiring in restaurants. you see hiring in offices and construction sites. let me dig into the numbers for you. unemployment rate, 7.7%. best in december. 2.78. private sector added 247,000 jobs. the government added 10,000. that's a trend we're seeing for some time. state budgets getting cut. economists are telling me this morning, probably school related jobs, but the private sector is hiring.
9:10 am
where is the private sector hiring? this is where you can get a glimpse of what's happening in the american economy. look at construction. 48,000 jobs out of there. probably a little bit of that is hurricane sandy reconstruction jobs. a lot of that is a housing market recovery. we're seeing the housing market perk up. that means good paying construction jobs. on the very top of your screen,that briefcase, 73,000 jobs, some of those are tax preparers. in offices and technology jobs and anything that has to do with computer systems design, those jobs doing pretty, pretty well sochlt y. so you can look across here. health care is up. that's been a steady area of job creation. what's so interesting about health care, there are two extremes in the health care jobs. you're seeing a lot of jobs added that are very low paying jobs. ironically, health care jobs that don't provide health insurance, and you're seeing other jobs that pay very, very well with some schooling and training. the more education, the more specific skills you have, the
9:11 am
more like lie you're finding a lake in the slow recovery in the labor market, guys. >> i don't know about getting a job in the health care area and not getting health insurance. >> that doesn't make any sense to me. thanks so much. we'll get another close encounter with a large asteroid this weekend, perhaps. >> don't panic. rest easy. but look up, just in case. >> keep looking over your shoulder. it's not going to get any closer than a mere 600,000 miles. the moon is less than half that distance away. >> so that explosion in kazakhstan shattered windows for miles around and 1,500 people were hurt. >> yeah, it's not like that one. deick is with the institute in philadelphia. he's going to lay it out for us. if something -- this isn't going to happen, but were it to happen, what could you do about it? >> you could put up your
9:12 am
titanium umbrella and hope for the best. >> have a party, you said to someone. >> that would be the best thing to do. party like it's 1999. if something really does hit us like that, it would ruin your day, let's say. >> so it wouldn't break up in the atmosphere, as it enters the earth's atmosphere, that is. >> would it break up? it depends on what kind of object it is. we talk about the objects as asteroids. they can be asteroids or meteorites. they typically make it to the surface if they're of considerable size. if it's rocky, it will typically break up in the earth's atmosphere and the smaller pieces will become much less destructive. zbloo we're telling people about it now. the scientists have known about it for a while longer. again we come to the questions of what would you do it about
9:13 am
it? people have ideas, don't they? >> yes, they do have ideas. one of the ideas is perhaps we'll send a bomb or nuclear missile to blow it up. that's not such a good idea. all you get then is a lot of pieces heading towards you. but i have another idea thought about by scientists. bear with me. this one is unusual. imagine you send a spacecraft, that's like a freighter that has a load, a payload, of a white substance like flour or sugar. if you spread this over one side of the asteroid, what happens is the white part versus the dark part creates difference shl heating on the surface. that then causes it to tumble and move off the trajectory. so there's an interesting way to make a change. >> i would like to see that happen. >> but for that to happen, it's a big what if that would be masterful. >> we need bruce willis on this
9:14 am
one. >> thank you. very fascinating. >> thanks for having me. >> here is more of what we're working on around the world. >> osama bin laden's son-in-law, we were talking about this yesterday. he's being arraigned in the u.s. court on charges of conspireing to kill americans. >> and we'll have his response to those charges in a live report. >> also coming up, new details on how that lion was able to attack an american intern working in a cat sanctuary. and later, justin bieber released from the hospital and preparing for a big concert in europe. we'll take you live to london for a preview. blacked him outs card here and here. he should have used... the capital one venture card. he's coming to us from home. hey fellas... hey baby, you want mama to iron your undies? nice tightie whities. i didn't know mrs. barkley made quilts. really? looks like a circus tent. is that the best you got? now if you put this, with this, you have a sailboat. what's in your wallet?

to get in. this is north korea's only true friend here. >> they do need each other. at least north korea needs china in a big way. the announcement of the sanctions brought rhetoric from north korea. state television has been showing what it says are new images of kim jong-un and his troops, although the date of this video is unclear. >> extraordinary video. they're all following him into the icy waters there. on thursday north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear attack on its enemies. they say seoul will respond strongly to any provocation. that is north korea in february. >> it is extraordinary to watch. oh my goodness. >>s i was also surprised that the boat that the leader is on is rather modest. >> that is devotion. about 60,000 members meantime of the u.s. customs and border protection services are awaiting

for the belt to tighten. they got word this week that furloughs are coming, along with a hiring freeze, no overtime and a big chop in training. >> yes, officials say the forced spending cuts, that's what is making them find a way to save more than $750 million by the end of september. they're expecting the furloughs, budget cuts, of course, delays and other snags at the nation's airports. >> bioy, oh, boy. a member of osama bin laden's family stood in a new york city courtroom today. >> sualaiman abu ghaith heard charges against him this morning. >> he's appearing in videos singing the praises of 9/11 attacks and is now charged with planning acts of terrorism. >> susan candiotti is inside the
9:20 am
courtroom. saw him face a judge, and he did enter a plea. >> reporter: yes, michael, he did. a plea was entered on his behalf, a not guilty plea. and it's always fascinating to see the terror suspects for the first time in person, especially because the last time we have seen him or the familiarity with him has been watching imon video taped messages in which he blasts the united states and warns americans that al qaeda is going to get him. now he is balding on the top of his head. he was lead into court with his hands handcuffed behind his back. those were removed before the court proceedings began. man has time and again been called the mouthpiece for osama bin laden. it was a very brief hearing today. it only lasted 15 minutes. first of all, prosecutors said they obtained from him a 22-page statement that he made to them after he was arrested. now, they provided no further details about that.
9:21 am
we also learn that he was arrested on february 28th when he was overseas. remember, he was in turkey. turkey expelled him, and he came to the united states via jordan. he arrived in the united states, according to prosecutors, on march 1st, and he's been held in a federal detention center ever since, until he made his first court appearance today. that back to you, michael. >> susan candiotti, we'll check back with you. fred townsend is with us now. the national security contributor. so let's talk about this. "a", still unclear where he was apprehended. but how unusual in your view is it that he would be facing these charges and make his first court appearance in the u.s., in new york city? >> fredricka, it is to the tremendous credit of u.s. intelligence and law enforcement authorities. this kind of an operation takes enormous amounts of coordination. not just inside the u.s.
9:22 am
government, but obviously with the cooperation and help of your allies around the world. the interesting thing, ab ababu abu ghaith has been in iran in what was sort of called house arrest. he had freedom. unclear why he left. was he expelled? did he choose to leave on his own? he had a false saudi passport, which is what got him in trouble in turkey. once he started to move the u.s. sports were able to track him. the fact that he's been brought back here so many years later to face charges is frankly a good thing. >> when he was puck picked up in turkey, they wouldn't have him. they tried to send him to a home company in kuwait. but tell us, peter bergen, he's saying this guy is not such a big fish. was he a talker or planner? how big was he within the organization? >> you know, michael, i think it's fair to say he was a bigger
9:23 am
fish. closer in time to 9/11. when he was with osama bin laden, he was in bora bora at that sort of last stand of bin laden in afghanistan. and he was a talker, but he also had the ability to issue threats on behalf of bin laden and the al qaeda organization. so over time, the point peter bergen is making is he's been on ice for more than ten years inside iran, not part of the operational loop, as best we can tell. and so i don't expect he'll have much relevant, realtime intelligence information that the u.s. authorities can act on. >> just really dotting the map there. clearly being trailed, even though kind of falling off the map for a period of time. but at the right moment was apprehended. >> and they picked him up initially. so interesting. several police officers in south africa behind bars for the horrific death that raised

9:28 am
get to hear their written statements read allowed. they essentially follow the same story. same version of events. they say the 27-year-old taxi driver had parked his car in the middle of the road. that he was resisting arrest. they say he was using abusive language and one police officer said he reached for another officer's gun. none of the statements explain what you just witnessed in the video that has been seen around the the world, which shows him being tied to the back of a police vehicle and being dragged for a distance. they also said they were shocked and surprised to find out hours later that he died in his cell. the autopsy revealed that he died of lack of oxygen to the brain and body. during the proceed agz as well i was able to speak to his father. he says there's no excuse. there's no explanation for what they did to his son. he says the police here need to
